Featuring Derek Evernden's Bogart Creek, Volume 1.
Our CCC member, Derek, recently published his first single panel comic book, Bogart Creek, and we got a few signed copies when we visited him at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival a few weeks back.
Everybody needs a good laugh (laughing makes you live longer), so it's nice to have these smart comics in our office for some chuckles. Here's our team's favourite picks!
Dharmesh's pick: Pg.5 " I love the juxtaposition of class elitism and killing it to create the art that the very same elitists love."
Josh L's pick: Pg.28"Potty humour is always funny and I can relate to the awkwardness of either talking or not talking when next to someone at a urinal."
Greg's pick: Pg. 32
"It's hella cute, c'mon."
Josh B's pick: Pg.54
"Pure evil turned into a joke -- brilliant."
Nigel's pick: Pg.59
"Why this one? Because nobody puts Spartacus in the corner. Iiiiiiiiiiiiii had, the time of my liiiiiiife."
Kendra's pick: Pg.74
"People are so afraid of thinking outside the box, but as a company we are encouraged to every day. It gets less scary the more you do it."
Kaitlyn's pick: Pg.75
"This is definitely what I thought work would be like when I was a kid. Thankfully, this didn't turn out to be true (at least, not at AHLOT)."
Chad's pick: Pg.116
"This was one of my favourite movies in the 80's and Eye of the Tiger was the first 45" that I owned."
Martin's pick: Pg.121
"A classic phrase begging to be rendered literally. The alligator really does it for me."
After two decades of conscious experimentation, Derek is still utterly amazed at how cannabis perfectly complements art, music, dance and food. A gifted illustrator and musician, he left the hustle and bustle of downtown Toronto to live in Milo, a small village of about 120 people in Southern Alberta. Bogart Creek, his first collection of single-panel hilarity, has just been published and is available online and in stores.
